Tiffany Sudela Junker: Exploring Connection vs Compliance
Karen Doyle Buckwalter welcomes Tiffany Sudela Junker to the show to discuss connection versus compliance and parenting kids with attachment difficulties.
Tiffany Sudela-Junker is mother to two children with vastly different trauma-based special needs. Her award winning documentary, My Name Is Faith, captures the Junkers’ early journey, coming to terms with the impact their daughter’s difficult beginning would have on them all.
With her own growth process as an example, Tif mentors and advocates for an “empathy + connection before correction” approach to parenting children with unique trauma-based special needs and stressing EXTRA mindfulness, humor, attunement, self-compassion and reciprocal atonement as key ingredients to helping tough kids achieve higher function and healthy, meaningful, resilience-building relationships.
